The general consensus among historians is that the name Topaz was derived from the name Topazios, a Greek name for an Island called Zabargad which is located in the Red Sea. Ironically, this island was never actually a source of Topaz gemstones, but instead had deposits of Peridots which were mistaken for Topaz before modern mineralogy was able to distinguish the stones. In Ancient Greece, Topaz gemstones were famed for their believed ability to give people strength. People in Renaissance Europe believed that Topaz gemstones could dispel anger and break magic spells. And in India, Topaz gemstones were worn above the heart as a talisman for intelligence, beauty and long life.
